Sunset Sherbet Review

Sunset Sherbet Review

Strength

Sunset Sherbet marijuana seeds

With 25% THC Sunset Sherbet has what it takes to deal quickly and effectively with even crippling pain and deeply negative emotional states. Since it has a relatively light 0.2% CBD, it won’t leave you out for the count for hours afterwards either.

Even though Sunset Sherbet has one of the highest THC levels around, it contains 85% Indica genetics. This means that although the high is still very evident, the sensation is a bit different than what you’d expect from a Sativa. It starts off rather euphoric, but will become more laid-back, mellow and blissfull. Sunset Sherbet is generally recommended to people who are looking for a day time strain. Even though it’s an Indica dominant, we wouldn’t recommend this strain for use at night. But we certainly think it’s a great “wake and bake” strain.

Yield

Sunset Sherbet marijuana seeds produce very impressive yields, especially given the size of the plants. Indoors you can collect up to 600g/m2. Outdoors you could be looking at up to 550g from each of your Sunset Sherbet marijuana plants.

Speed

Sunset Sherbet grows happily indoors or outdoors in a warm, sunny and dry climate. Indoors they will need 8 to 10 weeks of flowering time. Outdoors they will be ready for harvest around the end of September or start of October. What that means in practice is that you can expect a growing range of about 1.2M (indoor minimum) to 1.8M (outdoor maximum). With such high THC content and compact size, Sunset Sherbet really is a fast strain.

Sunset Sherbet marijuana seeds

We’ve classed Sunset Sherbet as being a medium-difficult grow purely because it’s a photoperiod strain. If you can grow outside or are confident managing light cycles, then you should find Sunset Sherbet very easy to manage. Sunset Sherbet comes from a long line of plants, which are quite used to fending for themselves without human assistance. So even a beginner grower should be able to get great harvests from this strain.

The key points, therefore, are ventilation and odour control. In particular, remember that the relatively short height of Sunset Sherbet is not a reason to crowd these plants into some small growing spaces. You absolutely must allow space for your plants to grow outwards, as well as upwards, without getting entangled in each other. Due to the amount of buds and such small size. If you do this, you can expect a straightforward, hassle-free grow.

When growing outdoors, think about prevailing winds, while the scent of Sunset Sherbet is very pleasant in small quantities, your neighbours may not want it blown into their faces day in and day out. Indoor growers should use air filters.

Taste

If you’re thinking of sherbet as in the sweet powder children like to eat or put into drinks, then you’re on the wrong lines. It is sweet, but it’s fruit sweet rather than candy sweet. There are also hints of citrus and mint for freshness, plus some robust earthiness to ground it. The aroma does perhaps resemble sherbet powder as that tends to smell quite fruity sweet, but again, there’s the earthiness to keep it all balanced.

Bag Appeal

Sunset Sherbet produces a weighty bag of bud, full of dense, chunky green nugs, enlivened by orange hairs and, of course, lots and lots of sparkling white trichomes. Forget about breaking up these fragrant beauties with your fingers, use a proper grinder and enjoy breathing in that glorious fruity fragrance you release.
